TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy is a low-viscosity wood rot restoration and repair solution that seals deeper & cures stronger than industry-leading penetrating epoxies. It has no VOCs, no odor & is 100% waterproof once cured.
This 2:1 system is ideal for restoring rotten or damaged wood, or sealing new wood for lasting protection against humidity, salt, mold & mildew. It works by gluing cellulose (wood) fibers back together, sealing a bare, porous wood surface from the inside out. Double the penetrating power by mixing acetone with the epoxy resin solution in equal volume. Easy to apply by brush, roller, or inject via syringe. Surfaces may be painted or varnished after light sanding.
Choose from Traditional (65-90 F) or Cold Weather (40-65 F) formulas in Pint, Quart, 1/2 Gallon & Gallon kits.

Cleanup is easy. Wear latex gloves, wash off with soap and water. No solvents required.
APPLICATION NOTE: The wood must be bare and unfinished. Also, TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy will not penetrate and level well when applied over some stains. Always test an area first. DO NOT USE on top of Minwax oil-based stains.
TotalBoat Cold Weather Penetrating Epoxy is perfect for use during the colder seasons. Compared to our traditional TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy, our Cold Weather formula offers similar performance characteristics, but cures completely and reliably in cooler temperatures. Its tack-free properties also allow you to sand sooner.
WARNING: TotalBoat Cold Weather Penetrating Epoxy should not be used as a fast-cure epoxy in warmer temperature conditions because doing so can be unsafe and result in premature exotherm, brittleness, and improper curing.

Great product, thinned the first batch, but not the remaining batches. This product on 19/32 ACX plywood doesn't need thinned in my opinion.

Have been using this product for a number of years and always happy with results . Tried adding paint thinner and lacquer thinner to several pots for better penetration. Both worked well but lacquer thinner pot life was shorter due to vaporization as the mix began to heat up in cure process .

I used this to seal outdoor plywood for new flooring in my Tracker Boat. It penetrate fast. I put 2 coats on all surfaces, it hard, and blocks any moisture. This is the second boat I've used this on in the last 15 years and I'm very happy with your product and your pump system.

The product worked great to seal the cedar wood for my Adirondack Chair project.

This penetrating epoxy made a potentially large project very small. Not a boat application, I used it with the resin cut with acetone to deep penetrate rotted rafter sections. It took 3 applications and 2 days of curing to get the punky wood solid again to where it would hold screws. But it worked. Wood that felt like styrofoam now feels like Doug fir again.

I have used TPE from Totalboat before. THIS time it wouldn't dry after 24 hours and when it did it left pooled spots, like the spots on a giraffe. I now wonder: 1. - if I didn't stir it enough, 2. - if I didn't mix it exactly right, or 3. -if the mahogany surface was too dense? any ideas ? Thanks

Used this to repair an area of the deck on my home that had some dry rot. The product works as described by bonding damaged wood and increasing it's strength.

"As advertised" doesn't seem like much of a review, until you consider all the products that don't live up to their claims. This epoxy does what it says, and does it well.

This worked great. I used 2 coats of the epoxy and 6 coats of Halycon for my walnut bar top
